“He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” John 1:11-13.
“How many truly follow after Me, says the Lord? How many know Me? For I came to my own and they did not recognize Me. If I came now and walked upon your streets, would you know Me and recognize Me? What kind of Jesus are you looking for?
Are you looking for the tender-hearted one that had the children come to Him? Perhaps you are looking for the one who turned the money changers’ tables over? Are you looking for the One that had the disciples follow after Him? Tell Me truly, which one are you looking for? Tell Me, for I would not be found among those who would normally think of. I came to the lost and they found Me. I was a friend of tax collectors and sinners. Many came to Me to be healed of their diseases. Some just touched my garment and they were well. I gave the woman at the well the living water that she needed. I welcomed all but not all came to Me.
But again I ask you, ‘What Jesus are you looking for?’ Are you looking for the one who will come back with a sword? Perhaps you are looking for the one who spoke to the Pharisees. Perhaps you are even one of them. I tell you, would I be found in your churches?
Would you welcome Me with open arms? Would I be found walking down your streets? Tell Me, would you truly recognize Me? Maybe I would be found in your halls and seminaries. Perhaps I would be found there as you discuss all of these matters.
I tell you that many that think that they know Me truly do not. I AM that I AM. On that day you will truly see Me. ”
